Affordable Housing Standards Amendments

The proposed amendments to the Land Use Ordinance relate specifically to units covered under the Ashland Affordable Housing Program which are required to be affordable due to a land use approval including annexations, zone changes, density bonuses for affordable housing, and conversion of apartments into condominiums. 
The Affordable Housing Program aims to balance long-term affordability while allowing a reasonable rate of return for homeowners and developers.  Several of the draft ordinance revisions aim to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the programís administration, and several changes are proposed to address regulatory barriers or to help simplify existing processes.   All of the proposed changes are expected to help to make the program more readily understood by affordable housing and private market developers, as well as to increase the coordination between affordable and private market developers. Lastly the proposed changes to simplify resale restrictions are designed to make the transfer of homes easier for participating households.
